MASTER PLANNING

Our Project Managers come from diverse backgrounds that include working with larger institutions with multiple buildings on a single property or campus, and even those with buildings spread out within the region.  We have applied the experience of our Project Managers to help our clients develop long range master plans to address the special challenges they face in multiple building or campus situations.  Medical facilities, colleges, educational institutions, churches and others have benefited from our planning and project management capabilities.

While the implementation stage of projects on campuses is very similar to the requirements for constructing individual buildings on individual lots, the planning aspects of campuses presents a different set of problems.
